WATCH: Tiger saves zookeeper from leopard attack

It can be seen in the footage that Mexican zookeeper, identified as Eduardo Serio, was saved by a heroic tiger, who knocked down a leopard that was sneaking up behind him.

Dharma the leopard can be seen lurking in the background and slowly begins stalking Mr Serio.

 The leopard then sprints and leaps toward the handler but, Aztlan the tiger who was only a few meters away, pounces into the path of Dharma, knocking her off track.

Dharma then became submissive and rolled onto the ground as Mr Serio thanks Aztlan in Spanish and gives him a congratulatory pat.
